Instant conditioner
I love conditioners that give a good slip for detangling and are super moisturizing. Instant/ rinse off conditioners strengthens, moisturizes and you can use them to wash your hair in between washes if you need to(co-washing).

Deep conditioner
Deep conditioner can either be moisturizing or protein conditioner and some products have a balance of both moisture and protein like marini 2in1 deep conditioner. Deep conditioners strengthen, nourish and repair the hair.

Leave-in conditioner
As the name states you apply and leave in the hair unlike the other conditioners that you have to rinse off. I love a moisturizing leave in since I don’t have to purchase a moisturizer. They add moisture, hydrate and soften your hair.
